Pilgrims earn back-to-back win vs TV

December 6, 2013

PLYMOUTH — Consider it an early tune-up for tournament time.
Fresh from a convincing road win at Knox Wednesday night, Plymouth earned its second victory on back-to-back nights with a 50-33 win over visiting Tippecanoe Valley at home at The Rock Thursday night.
The Lady Pilgrims remained unbeaten at 6-0 with the result.
“That’s the tournament, and that’s coming down the road here quicker than we think,” said Plymouth girls basketball coach Dave Duncan. “I think that’s important. I think the kids need to understand we have to play back-to-back at some points. I think that prepares you for down the road, so that was good for us.”
Both teams got off to a somewhat sluggish start, combining for a 5-of-23 shooting rate from the field over the first quarter, although the Pilgrims managed to take a tentative 6-4 lead into the quarter break on a short Hunter Stevens jumper off the dribble at the 1:47 mark of the first period.
Plymouth’s offense woke up in the second frame, as the Pilgrims knocked down their first three shots of the period to take a 12-4 lead and force a Tippy Valley timeout. After the Vikings attempted a box-and-one on Stevens, Haley Harrell knocked down a pair of 3s, Kaydon Fosler hit a pull-up jumper from outside the lane, and the Plymouth defense held the visitors to 1-of-3 from the field in the quarter to help the home team grab a 23-8 halftime cushion.
